Basement Laundry Room Makeover


*Sherwin-Williams was kind enough to provide the paint for this project. All opinions are my own, as usual.

Transform your unfinished basement laundry room with a tiny budget using these laundry room ideas and DIY's!I’m finally here to share my basement laundry room makeover on a budget reveal! I did this whole thing for under $50 and I’m excited to share what I did so that you can do the same if you have an ugly unfinished basement laundry room. Check out my mood board and laundry room update post to see the entire transformation. Hopefully this post will offer you some laundry room ideas even if you have a nice finished one (I will try to not be jealous)!

 

Just as a scary reminder, here was my laundry room before:

The majority of what made this transformation so dramatic was paint and fabric. Since I was dealing with dingy concrete, I wanted to use a good quality paint. I turned to Sherwin-Williams’ Harmony paint. I used this paint for our basement makeover and loved it. It’s zero VOC and provides a washable, durable finish to the walls which is exactly what I needed for the basement. I decided to just do a bright white satin to keep things clean and simple. The paint covered beautifully in 2 coats and I’m so happy with it!

I added an inexpensive rug from Home Goods to warm it up. To hide the ugly pipes, I just used the staple gun and stapled on some white fabric that I quickly hemmed to under the sink and shelf.  I had found a large quantity of white fabric on discount this summer and saved it for this reason. So, it ended up only being a few dollars and it makes the hugest difference.

I love that the little mason jar can be a spot to throw loose change that I find as I’m loading the washer.

Well, I actually bought one to replace it but then quickly realized that we would have cut out the ceiling to change it out. Totally not worth it. So I just quickly threw on a white tissue paper tassel garland to disguise the ugliness. I will share more about how I did this later.

They are from none other than…Dollar Tree of course! The bottom shelf is a spot to stash laundry baskets as I unload the dryer.
